Flashcards in Heat Transfer Deck (6)
Describe the two different types of heat
a, The amount of heat an object contains related to its temperature
a. The amount of heat an object contains related to changes of state
b. Most energy
Describe the two types of latent heat
1. Latent heat of vaporization: Gas to liquid or vice versa
2. Latent heat of fusion: Liquid to solid or vice versa
*Latent heat of vaporization has more energy
What are the driving forces and resistance for conduction?
Driving force: temperature difference
How can the rate of heat transfer be reduced?
1. Decrease driving force
2. Increase resistance
How can the resistance to heat transfer due to conduction be increased in a building?
1. Add insulation or add higher quality insulation
2. Increase surface area
